If you win your conference, you are by default the best team

in your conference and a CCG is the most suitable vehicle for doing so in a conference with 12 or more teams.

You can't be the best team in the nation if you're not even the best team in your conference.

Arguments to the contrary are subjective, anecdotal, often masturbatory, and usually presented by folks with an agenda.

I'd much rather the subjective, anecdotal hyperbation apply to deciding who gets left out than who's eligible to get in. It makes OOC matchups more relevant which is also good for the popularity of the sport and therefore good for ratings. And it also ensures we avoid the corrupted abomination machinated this year with two teams from the same conference and three teams from a tri-state area vying for the championship.

It's not really that complicated save that involved power brokers want things a certain way.
